Spring 2022 Update

Beginning Feb. 21, 2022, our presenters will be available for in-person workshops. In order to maximize safety for our presenters and your group, please consider the following when requesting an in-person workshop:

  • Ensure that the room used is large enough to comfortably fit your socially distanced group.
  • Masks are strongly recommended indoors regardless of vaccination status.
  • Minimize close contact by emailing materials like handouts rather than distributing them physically.
  • If you anticipate challenges meeting the recommended guidelines above, consider making your workshop request for a virtual workshop.

Our presenters will be following new guidelines to reduce close contact, including taking attendance by QR code and leading modified workshop activities. Thank you for working with us to keep Texas safe.


Sanger Learning Center provides a variety of interactive workshops to help UT Austin students succeed in their courses. Workshops are facilitated by our trained student Outreach and Communication Specialists. Most workshops are 45-50 minutes in length and all workshops contain proven, research-based strategies.
